Video Transcription

That summer in Aspen I had just ended a relationship and she had come back to my apartment to pick up a few things. As she was leaving, she stopped and said, "you know what the difference is between you and Perlman?" I braced myself for the worse "He's quicker than you are!" And with that she got on her new boyfriend's motorcycle and left. Well, I shrugged it off and walked back up to my apartment. Entering the apartment I thought, Ok that's true, but so what. After a few more steps I thought you know she's right, he is faster. I took a few more steps and thought OK but why? From that moment on what she said was totally in my head. I became obsessed with it, totally obsessed with trying to figure out what he was doing differently that made him faster than me.
